Not much luck on removing those--though we're tempted to get a blowtorch thing
Floor has been de-rusted and treated, minus the annoying whchr blocks. Had to lay down a few sheets of metal after removing rusted out sections. Riveted those in. Put new seals around back and lift door, though need to put on a new corner piece for the back door that has one corner rusted out.
Painting is all done for now, no yellow showing anywhere. With warmer temps I will be retapig her up and wetsanding and putting on a new coat of paint. Paint job looks a bit rough in my opinion. Almost hammered look in most places. If I could afford to spray her I would, 'cause brushes and a variety of rollers doesn't cut it for a pro looking job.
State patrol officer arrives in an hour to do the forms for retitle, then it is off to the DMV for plates and new title.
Oh, this is a shot of the underside. I'm trying to figure out where I can do SOMETHING so I can strap on the water barrels. Using heavy duty wheel chair strapping (high rated, expensive but came with bus). Might reinforce with those tornado metal straps. Thing is I don't have access to a welder nor a drill that can get through that thick of metal. Any suggestions?
